Cindy Sheehan says Bill O'Reilly's Show is an "Obscenity to Humanity"

Reported by Melanie - August 10, 2005

As Seen on The O'Reilly Factor

I just got off a conference call with Cindy Sheehan. Even though it rained last night and Sheehan is suffering from a sore throat and a fever, she is in good spirits and very, very determined and committed to see this through.

Sheehan said she is "overwhelmed and amazed at all the support" she's getting. She specifically said Texans have been amazing as has the sheriff of Crawford. She said people from places like North Carolina, Oregon, and all parts of Texas are coming to Crawford to join her. She credited the Internet, saying without it, "nobody would know what was truly going on." The "mainstream media is a propaganda tool for the government," she said, and without the Internet, "we would be a fascist state." So true.

Someone asked whether she was going to be on Bill O'Reilly's show tonight. She said the show called her this morning and invited her on. Initially she thought she would take them up on it but then she thought, "No!" She said it's fine if O'Reilly disagrees with her politics but after he attacked her last night she decided she's "not going to dignify his show" with her presence. She said O'Reilly's show is an "obscenity to the truth and an obscenity to humanity."

Representative Jan Schakowski (D-IL) was on the call and sent Sheehan her love and support. Schakowski said if anyone wonders what noble cause Casey Sheehan died for, the noble cause was to help Cindy Sheehan, "end this war." I think Schakowski is probably right.

Sheehan said she had four dates with NBC for interviews but NBC canceled two of them and didn't show for the other two. She noted that a lot of money is being made on this war by companies such as GE, the owner of NBC, so naturally they aren't going to be enthusiastic about covering her story. Again, so true.

Asked how she feels about the MSM devoting so much time to the Natalee Holloway story, Sheehan said, "Holloway is a tragedy for one family" but what she's doing is trying to help thousands of families avoid tragedy.

Support Cindy. Go to MeetWithCindy.org. Do whatever you can to help. If nothing else, sign the online petition, here, asking President Bush to meet with Cindy.

The call was recorded and I will post a link to it as soon as it's available.

Let's keep on keepin' on everyone. There is much to do.
